Cashier / Post Office Clerk (Current Employee) – Woodbridge, ON – 23 March 2018
Management is very warm and friendly The most enjoyable part of the job is that my co-workers and supervisors are very warm, when I first started they all helped me learn the rules and regulations of the store. I started off as a cashier and then slowly, I got my training for Post Office as well. It is a very friendly environment and you get lost of opportunities to learn and grow as an employee.
Beauty Boutique Expert (Former Employee) – Medicine Hat, AB – 15 February 2018
Management in the Medicine Hat Mall establishment are rude, immature, and let people go for the simple fact that they do not like them. Especially the manager in the Beauty Boutique. Great job, horrible staff.
Customer Service (Former Employee) – Okotoks, AB – 14 February 2018
A typical day at work involved getting there about 15 minutes early so that I would be able to get changed into my work attire, followed by chatting with fellow co-workers before my shift would start. After that, it would it be into the back room to get my assignments for the day and have a team meeting to discuss anything that management thought was relevant. What I learned was that good leadership is key to making a workplace effective.
Cosmetician (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 13 February 2018
Great place to gain experience in customer service and skincare. There is always something to keep you busy. Best part is helping clients with their needs, and having them come back just for you, because of your knowledge and advice you gave them.
Beauty Expert (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 13 February 2018
I found the management to be problematic and incompetent. The pharmacist was amazing and wonderful just the staff was a problem. The job itself was fine and satisfying but any systems in place for managerial issues are insufficient. Additionally, the systems for Boutique employees are unrealistic and irrelevant and desperately need updating and fine tuning.
Cashier (Current Employee) – Ontario – 11 February 2018
I wouldn't even rate the management at Shoppers a one... Absolutley terrible. Treated like a slave and all the supervisors take out their anger on the cashiers and treat you like a pile of garbage everyday. Management DOES NOT care about anything. If you bring forth a major issue, they slide it under the mat and don't care about it. Wouldn't recommend working for Shoppers Drug Mart.
Cash Supervisor (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 11 February 2018
This location was not productive at all. Staff did not complete their tasks there was delayed work, no proper staffing, we did not get a raise or over time hours. During visits from the Head Office we would be at the store until the next morning working to ensure everything was up to date. it was ridiculous
Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 11 February 2018
Shoppers was a fun summer job to have with a lively team. Although you might thinks the job is boring (as it can be), when you have a friendly team at your location the time will go by fast and won't be a pain to work their.
Team members, Manager is friendly and picks up on the work you do
Cash Supervisor (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 9 February 2018
The job is a job, it doesnt come with any benefits or pay increases , regardless of your position you will still be paid minimum wage. Only pay you will 12 regardless of the time it takes to actually finish counting the trays and putting it all away.
Assistant Front Store Manager (Current Employee) – Ottawa East, ON Carleton Place, ON – 8 February 2018
Shoppers Drug Mart is a good company to work for. Much like many of the retail store fronts today it is a mix of fast paced learning and on the job doing. These days I find it more difficult to train staff efficiently when the turn over rate is much higher it seems.
Pharmacist (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 8 February 2018
The daily work is generally busy, we have a high rate of MedChecks and customer support. This experience is adding a great exposure to mine on daily basis. the atmosphere is quite friendly, and the team members are highly active and knowledgeable.
